The user will always have the choice. The question is only whether a 
list of all possible services make sense to ask in the installer. IMO, 
this is the distribution's responsibility. For cpuspeed, enable it by 
default if the hardware is capable. If the hardware is not capable, 
cpuspeed disables itself on start.
